Busy Parent Briefing: No More DADT- Don't Ask Don't Tell Officially Repealed

Speaker Nancy Pelosi in the Capitol Visitor Center Auditorium at an enrollment ceremony with Democratic Members of the House and Senate and service members to sign legislation repealing the discriminatory ‘Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy.

History has been made this morning as the military can no longer prevent gays from serving openly in its ranks. Don’t Ask Don’t Tell  has officially been repealed as of today- the 1993 law allowed homosexuals to serve in the military only if they kept their sexual orientation a secret. The DADT act specified that service members who disclosed that they were homosexual or engaged in homosexual conduct would be discharged.

 

 

The congressional bill to repeal DADT was put in place in December 2010.
